How to Make Maui Zowie Pineapple Pie

  1. To make Pie Crust: Finely crush pretzel sticks in a food processor, blender or with rolling pin. Mix together pretzel crumbs with sugar and add melted butter. Press into a 9" pie plate and bake in preheated 350°F oven (175°C) for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. Cool.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk with lemon juice, mixing well. Add (well drained) crushed pineapple, coconut and chopped macadamia nuts to batter, only stirring lightly to separate. Fold in (thawed)whipped topping.
  4. Slice two bananas and layer the bottom and sides of reserved prepared pie crust.
  5. Pour filling into crust over bananas. Sprinkle toasted coconut along the outter edge of pie top. Refrigerate for 4hrs. (or overnight)
